An NYPD cop has surrendered in an attack on an MTA worker, officials said Thursday.

Police Officer Mirjan Lolja, 37, was suspended after the assault in which the Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker who was on-duty and in her uniform was allegedly put into a bear hug, thrown to the floor and choked, cops said.

Im totally outraged, Joe Costales, chairman of Transport Workers Union Local 100, said of the allegations. Were not safe with members of the public, and now were not safe from the police.

The 28-year-old conductor was on the southbound D train platform at the Tremont Ave. station when Lolja confronted her about 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 23, officials said. She was hospitalized with minor back and neck injuries.

Lolja was caught on surveillance video running from the station with a smirk on his face, according to cops.

Once Lolja saw the video on the news, he turned himself in at the 25th Precinct in Harlem, where hes been a cop for seven years, police sources said.

The officer said he fought with the conductor after she cursed at him for asking when the next train would arrive. When he demanded her ID and took out his phone to take a picture of her, she grabbed it, prompting a struggle, he alleged.
